Our Community Calendar is a resource we offer to all qualified nonprofits. Community Calendar events are highlighted live, on-air throughout the day on KCPW. Featured events are chosen at random. You will also find all current Community Calendar events listed here at kcpw.org.

PLEASE NOTE: Our Community Calendar now also has a physical home. Following the criteria listed below, bring professional materials (no handwritten signs please) promoting your event to the KCPW studios at 210 East 400 South, Suite 10. We’ll happily hang them in our window for all Library Square traffic to see.

To submit an event to the Community Calendar, the event must meet the following criteria:

  • The event must take place in Utah.
  • The organization promoting the event  must be a qualified 501 (c) (3) charity or political subdivision.
  • The event cannot promote a religious organization or individual.

If your event meets these criteria, click “Post Your Event” below. Include your contact information in case we have any questions. Otherwise, your event may not get published.

KCPW would like to encourage you to make the most of your post by adding a featured image and links to your organization.  Utilize the provided field boxes (i.e. location, ticket information) to display information as accurately and quickly as possible.  Please do not submit duplicate postings for the same event.

Please submit requests at least 10-14 days before your event – event listings read  on-air are chosen at random, at least two weeks prior to the event.

If you are posting a class or workshop that requires registration, list just the first instance in the date and time, and include the details for subsequent classes in the description.

One for the Books: Non-traditional Letterpress Techniques @ Marriott Library

One for the Books: Non-traditional Letterpress Techniques @ Marriott Library |  |  |

July 14 & 15
Friday & Saturday, 10:00–5:00
$200, Registration Required

Letterpress printing and typography are often bound with rigid procedures and constraints. This workshop provides the opportunity to explore non-traditional letterpress printing techniques by intelligently bending the rules in order to prompt creative design possibilities. On flatbed presses, students print from DIY printing plates including pressure prints and collagraphs. Pushing the constraints of metal and wood type, students explore how letters can be both image and text. Discussion includes the role that ink color, paper type, registration and mark-making play in the design of unique letterpress prints. Students leave with an edition of an eight-page artists’ book printed as a single printer’s sheet. Space is limited to 15 participants.
